FAQs

Do I have to write articles or guides to be a Decktionary creator?

You do not need to write deck guides or articles to be a creator on Decktionary. Creators, such as YouTubers, streamers, or podcasters can benefit from the various features we offer such as; offering viewers to financially support your content through membership tiers, and in return, you can offer other perks such as private discord access, Q&A’s or shout outs.

You can also take advantage of being part of the Decktionary content creator discord, where you can talk to creators similar to yourself. You can share experiences, seek advice from like-minded people, or look for guest features for videos & podcasts


How do I upload my articles/guides to Decktionary? Is it complicated?

Not at all! If you already have written content you have produced you can send it over in PDF (or whatever other format you might use) via email and we will take the content from the PDF and turn it into a professional-looking guide or article on the website. 

If you have not written the content yet we can send over a template to help you get started, once you are happy with your work just let us know and we will take care of the rest.


Why would I use this over Patreon/ other membership platforms?

Decktionary is bringing all the various MTG-related Patreon creators together under one roof. This means if a reader wants to find a particular type of content they can have a singular place to find it. Typically only your existing fans will come across your patreon, whereas on Decktionary the idea is to bring the creators to the reader giving everyone better exposure to you the creator.

If you want to publish any written content then Decktionary will bring your content to the next level, making downloadable PDFs a thing of the past. Instead bring interactive webpages to your readers where they can view the cards by hovering over them, use tabs to show and hide different sideboarding information and so much more. Utilizing these features will also help protect your content from being shared online for free.

You can also take advantage of being part of the Decktionary content creator discord, where you can talk to creators similar to yourself. You can share experiences, seek advice from like-minded people or look for guest features for videos & podcasts.


Can I use Decktionary & Patreon?

Yes! If you already have an existing set of supporters on Patreon there is no reason to not give them the option of both platforms and see which they prefer. If you have any content you would like published on both simply send us a copy of the content and we will take care of publishing it on Decktionary for you.


What are the fees like in comparison to other platforms such as Patreon?

Patreon, for example, has quite a complex fee system using both flat fees & percentage fees. These fees consist of; income fees, currency conversion fees, payout fees, and processing fees. In practice, these fees tend to total between 10-20%. Decktionary has a much simpler approach with a fee of just 10% + £0.20 per subscriber. This helps us pay for processing fees and to keep the lights on.
